Teledyne DALSA Calibir - Uncooled LWIR camera for confined spaces

  • Low-weigth and compact LWIR camera (long wave infrared)
  • Uncooled microbolometer with VGA resolution
  • Spectral response 8 µm to 14 µm
  • Extremely small form factor since the camera requires no mechanical shutter; ideally suited for use in confined spaces
  • Robust calibration (even without mechanical shutter)
  • Advanced pre-processing algorithms that adapt to the image content
  • High level of image evaluability thanks to the “Adaptive Contrast Enhancement” which optimises contrast to show the finest details regardless of conditions or intra-scene variations
  • Built-in pseudo-colour for enhanced visualisation
  • Flexible output options: supports analogue and digital output formats
  • Robust industrial housing
  • Enhanced flexibility when defining the operational range due to a wide range of lens options

Reasons for Teledyne DALSA Calibir

You want to minimise your downtimes

The Teledyne DALSA Calibir camera requires no mechanical shutter for calibration meaning instant image output and no interruption for recalibration. The image output of the Calibir camera remains stable across time and temperature range.

Your benefits:

  • You get stable image quality and minimise the downtimes of your system.
  • The absence of the mechanical shutter reduces the risk of defective parts and downtimes due to repair and helps you improve uptimes of your system.

You want to obtain reliable image results even in changing environmental conditions

Thanks to the Adaptive Contrast Enhancement Teledyne DALSA Calibir’s advanced image processing algorithms adapt to the image content, optimising contrast to show the finest details and deliver high quality images.

Your benefit:

  • With no manual intervention for image adaption required, the Calibir series delivers high-contrast images - even in changing environmental conditions which significantly improves data evaluation.


  • Lens mount: M25 or M34
  • Flexible output options:
    • GigE Vision output using RJ-45
    • Analogue using BNC
